Yes, the ports are there:

[mark at Godzilla mark]$ amidi -l
Device    Name
hw:0,0     MIDI 1
hw:0,1     MIDI 2
[mark at Godzilla mark]$

Am I using them incorrectly? Using amidi I see hw:0,0 and hw:0,1while
in qjackctl I see 64:0 & 64:32. I'm realizing that I don't know which
numeric version to use.

0
0,0
0:0
64:0

Something else?


[mark at Godzilla mark]$ amidi -l
Device    Name
hw:0,0     MIDI 1
hw:0,1     MIDI 2
[mark at Godzilla mark]$ arecordmidi --port hw:0,0 --dump midi-test.mid
Invalid port hw:0 - No such file or directory
[mark at Godzilla mark]$
[mark at Godzilla mark]$ arecordmidi --port 64,0 --dump midi-test.mid

[mark at Godzilla mark]$ arecordmidi --port 64:0 --dump midi-test.mid

[mark at Godzilla mark]$ arecordmidi --port 64:32 --dump midi-test.mid

None of these seem to produce any results. I can use vkeybd and see
events though so it seems to be the HDSP 9652, however vkeybd doesn't
show up in amidi -l so I don't know what to use for port numbers....

Confused,
Mark
